Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the options are limited since you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
